do a little dance…

well hello human! i’m afraid i’ve been away for a few weeks for a number of rather trivial reasons:
first, my application for indefinite leave to remain posted on the planet called earth and for continued publishing rights granted by the left low council of {!!^/@!*} was subjected to a level of bureaucratic scrutiny that even italian human would be impressed by;
second i have fallen victim to the somewhat counterintuitive human work week (i.e. inexplicably more work days than rest days; why this should be the case when it is not so in the rest of the galaxy is not entirely clear to me, especially when it does not appear that this apportionment of time is reflected in human productivity);
and third, someone pinched my drawing pen.

anyway… imagine my complete and utter surprise at discovering that despite my neglectful absence, one kind human and consistently charming chitty chatterer had not forgotten me, but in fact nominated me for

to be honest, i am not at all sure what this awards business is all about. praise is discouraged on {!!^/@!*} and awards outright forbidden, so i accept this with some trepidation… perhaps the right high council will at least be pacified by the fact that said award comes with a number of arduous duties and responsibilities:

  • write a post and start by thanking the person who nominated you. be sure you link to them, too.
  • share a little something about why you blog (i.e. your blogging journey).
  • paste the addictive blog award on your front page.
  • nominate ten blogs that you are addicted to, link to them in your post and then let each of them know—when you do, be sure to give them the link to the post you just wrote!

post and thanks, check.

share, check.

paste, check.

nominate… um… crikey… ok so here are some interesting human i have been much amused and entertained by on those very few precious rest days allocated by the seemingly malevolent earth central government:
1. live, nerd, repeat (hilarious, first-class nerdery)
2. simple drawings about things that happen (exactly ‘as it says on the tin’)
3. a4man (gloriously observed art in accessible colours and shapes)
4. do not get sick in the sink, please (not really about being sick, but funny nonetheless)
5. california pixie (wonderful photos and the occasional yummy treat)
6. canadian hiking photography (amazing photos, but the paint splash pictures alone justify this human’s nomination)
7. ladders-online (seriously, who would have thought ladders could be so interesting?)
8. buntscheck (more glorious photographs, but of an urban persuasion)
9… um, nope… i don’t have any more.

right, only thing left to do is to do a victory dance!!!!
